Total Comfort Food! Apologies to the vegans out there, but I used the recipe as a guide and made it into a pot of beef minestrone. Based on ingredients I had on hand, I subbed butternut squash for yellow; added diced celery, carrots and chopped frozen green beans; subbed two cans of kidney beans only and one 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes as the only canned tomato product used; a little cumin and a tablespoon of dried Italian herbs subbed for chili powder and oregano. One half pound of beef stew cut in small dice, and beef broth completed the soup. Just used a big soup pot and sauteed the vegetables and beef, adding everything else and simmering 2-3 hours.
Even more delicious the next day.
